From what I can tell, you need explicit permission. See Monte's thread:

There is still a lot of gray area in Monte's thread .
greenone is helpful , but not a curator .
Where are the curator's for answers ?
Is this a small issue in the big picture ?
Isn't this issue right at the front lines of copyright law ?
Feature films and classic tv deal with copyright issues a great deal of time in their forum's . ( I know the laws are different . )
BD gave me a heads up to 2 sites to help me understand some aspects of copyright law ( thank - you BD ) . I rec. the ' comic book ' version .

Where's Ken Burns, when we could really use him? Why not do a very cool documentary? The Artists recorded on my tapes were developing exciting and new evolving musical forms. They were the first ones pushing their genre's boundaries -- Bluegrass music -- in several different directions at once. It was called Newgrass music. As they were doing this, they would showcase their risk-tasking musical styles, improvisational skills playing their instruments, some very lovely and soulful singing, impressive arrangements, and energy-filled performances. Audiences were thrilled to see exciting new things for the first time ever. A few of my tapes back up these facts.

Ken Burns has done documentaries on Baseball, the Civil War, and who knows what else. He even did one on Jazz. All of them have wonderful background music as well.

Grateful Dead have their funding sources, new Archivist, and they're upgrading their place at UCSC.

Shades of gray? Sure, this is most often the case. That's because no one size, or no one box, fits all. But as far as the above is concerned, it's pretty black and white to me. Tapes that are pre-1980 will back me up on this.

great, i figured as much. Perhaps I should have guessed the answer as obvious.
